cheap carbon fork?

I'm hunting for a cheap 1-1/8"carbon fork, something decent, for under 200, that can get to my house here in Savannah ga by Thursday at the latest

i bought one on eBay and its taking foooooorrrreeeevvvvver to get here, i feel really ripped off and i have a race on Saturday

looks like my options are pretty much the ritchey comp fork? and maybe the ecx70 by easton?

nashbar is out of stock for the 1-1/8"

cross season has really dried up all the supply of these forks, and i'm getting desperate so i was hoping you guys might know of some good sites i could count on!?

See if Performance can get this down to you by Thurs, then flip the frame for $100. $130 fork.

I run the Ritchey and it's nice.

What length steerer do you need? I have an OEM (same as Winwood Dualist, but alloy steerer) carbon fork with ~ 200mm, and a Ritchey Comp fork with about the same. Both are in good shape, and I'd sell/ship either for a decent price.
